How about a knuckle sandwich?

  1. Picked up this the other day when I was on St Thomas. Price was good enough and I needed someghing to make for a work function for tonight.


    I used a tweaked version of Jeff's rub recipe, gave it a healthy dose...wrapped it up and got it ready for a long day on the Weber Kettle (yesterday)

    Did the 3/4 circle of charcoal and changed it up a bit. Instead of using the AMNPS...I just tossed pellets onto the charcoal as an experiment. (been having issues with it burning long time due to moisture & air flow on the amnps)

    Started 8am and removed at 4:20pm at an IT of 192. Too high for what I really wanted but I was working all day! Temp of the kettle was 240 when I left and 234 when I got back home!

    Sliced and ready. Will reheat and add drippings with tonight.

    A bit dry but that is what it did! Would have preferred to have been home and attended better, but it tastes GREAT!!!

    Not familiar with that cut but if it is knuckle it has lots of collagen in it so I bet it smokes up real nice.  I'll have to keep my eyes open for one.

    A peeled knuckle is what they cut the sirloin tip from. I buy them at restaurant depot and make snack stixs out of them the also smoke a chunk for some roast beef sammie. They usually run about 15+lbs.
  5. Looks like there wasn't a lot of fat on it. Looks pretty tasty. Should make great sammies.

    Here is what it is.

    I thought peeled refered to silver skin or fat layer removed.  It is actually the meat removed from the knuckle bone so it probably isn't high in collagen.  Thanks for the lesson!

    NIcely done!  Nice smoke ring, and looks great!
  8. This was the only one in the store and it had really nothing to speak of for fat. I had thought of topping it with bacon but forgot.  It took the smoke great. It was a solid chunk of meat.

    I was also pleased with the way the pellets smoked.
